Like in 2010, the Hungarian GP will be held this year once again on 1 August. There were multiple differences as compared to the current F1 cars, from the type of engines used to the number of rpm allowed, from the lack of a maximum permitted fuel consumption to the absence of expense limits.
However, then, like now, the braking systems had to ensure the best in both qualifying with the vehicles empty and on the starting grid with tanks full. According to Brembo engineers, the Hungaroring is one of those tracks with a medium level of difficulty for brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it earned a 3 on the difficulty index, the same as the Zandvoort track.
